History: Helters Ltd (a Blackpool
Pleasure Beach-owned company which operated a number
of rides at Pleasureland) added the 1001 Mirrors and
Haunted Swing attractions to Pleasureland in 1961,
on the former site of the Dive Bomber/Moon Rocket.
1001 Mirrors was a simple maze
made up of sheets of glass and mirrors. People would
think they'd found their way through, only to walk
into a sheet of glass.
In 2003, Geoffrey Thompson
opened ‘Abdullah’s Dilemma’, a revamp of the old
Haunted Swing and 1001 Mirrors, combined into a
single attraction. This was similar to the way two
almost identical rides were combined into
'Impossible' at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
Represents a rare amusement park ride.
Latest: Now in
storage for use in the Heritage Park.
